BlogCFC Beta 2 Released

This post is more than 2 years old.

The second beta of BlogCFC5 is now released. Changes include:

  • Optional CAPTCHA for comment submissions. Thanks to the Lyla project.
  • RSS category feeds now show a category name.
  • More CSS cleanup.
  • Keyword filter in the entries admin. This helps with blogs with lots of entries.
  • Calendar uses SES urls.
  • Steven Erat wrote some code to auto-link URLs in comments. Not only does it auto-link, it will also crop the length of the URL.
  • More random, various small changes and fixed.

So I've made a decision. I'm going to hold off on XML-RPC till a post 5.0 release. The reason is that I really want to release BlogCFC 5. There is one more feature I want to get in and that is Postgres support. Brian Ghidineli had written some code for an earlier version so I bugged him to see if he could potentially update it for v5. (Cuz I do that. Ask my contributors for v5. I bugged he heck out of em. That's gratitude for you. ;)

So, all in all, I expect/hope to release by the next weekend. Note that I'm not running b2 here yet. I'll add that later in the weekend.

As with last time, please do not post bug reports here. Use the BlogCFC 5 dev forum. I also recommend reading the BlogCFC blog for the very latest updates.
